St. La­zare food drive Sa­tur­day

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

An an­nual tra­di­tion in ma­ny MRC Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes towns will get un­der­way in Saint-La­zare Sa­tur­day when vo­lun­teers go door to door col­lec­ting for the an­nual gui­gno­lée. Or­ga­ni­zers say the aim of the Dec. 7 food drive is col­lec­ting as ma­ny non per­ishable food items as pos­sible.

All do­na­tions will be used in do­zens of Ch­rist­mas bas­kets that will be dis­tri­bu­ted to strug­gling fa­mi­lies in the com­mu­ni­ty. Sug­ges­ted food do­na­tions in­clude the following: can­ned milk, ce­real, oat­meal, pea­nut but­ter, ho­ney, sy­rup, dried fruits or nuts, rice, pas­ta, flour, cof­fee, tea or her­bal tea, toi­le­try items, pa­per goods, and more. Re­si­dents who’d like to do­nate but who will not be home are as­ked to leave any well iden­ti­fied do­na­tions near their front door.

Loo­king for vo­lun­teers

And or­ga­ni­zers are al­so in need of more vo­lun­teers to help col­lect the food Sa­tur­day. Lunch will be pro­vi­ded. Those in­ter­es­ted are as­ked to go to the ba­se­ment of the Saint-La­zare ca­tho­lic church, 1980 Che­min Sainte-An­gé­lique, on Dec. 7 at 8:30 a.m. For in­for­ma­tion about the food drive, or about be­co­ming a vo­lun­teer call Ma­non Le­roux at 450-455-8000.
